Two Illinois tax rebates were available during 2022 – an individual income tax rebate and a property tax rebate. (Those one-time payments have sometimes been referred to as Illinois "stimulus checks"). 

The state started sending rebates of up to $700 in September of last year, but the state has said that it could take months to process and deliver payments for the estimated six million recipients. So, don't panic if you qualify for a rebate but still haven't received your money. Instead, go online to check the status of your Illinois tax rebate – your payment may be on the way.
